Hipster overload: Cereal Killer Cafe opens

ViolentPanda

Hardly getting over it.
You think that the demographic that the beigel shops serve is materially different to the demographic that Cereal Killer serves a few doors down?
Significantly different, not least because of the opening hours. I doubt, for example, that the CKC gets a lot of custom from cabbies and other shiftworkers, or from observant Jews.

But they are, for the largest part, now a "hipster" (read trendy young person) late night food joint now, no?

Nope. There may be "hipsters" using them at certain times, but they're hardly dependent on the skinny-jeaned brigade for their livelihood.
They're 24 hours, aren't they?

Admittedly, the only time I've been to either of them and have been prepared to wait in the queue, which is normally huge, is late at night and most of the members of that queue look like they would fall into the "hipster" basket, not the shift worker, or the cab driver, and almost certainly not the observant Jew.

Maybe, that's a wrong impression but I have also gone there from time to time to pick up a beigel for lunch during work and the queues have been comparatively minor and the demographic much less "hipster"-ish but my strong impression is that these guys make a lot of, if not most, of their money out of the terrible "hipsters" who might dare to visit the Cereal Killer cafe just down the road.

The bagel places have always served a younger crowd late at night, people used to get cabs halfway across the city to go there in the middle of the night :D
